ReWild the Child NWA. LLC was founded when we recognized a need in our community for kids to have an adventurous sensory integrative play experience and reconnect with nature and detox from screen time.

​Practicing in a clinic environment as pediatric occupational therapists, we have worked with children of all ages to assist in sensory processing, motor skills, and self-regulation in order to participate in all areas of their activities of daily living successfully. Although a clinic environment is extremely useful, we saw the benefit of a sensory rich experience of outdoor play. Our nature-based therapy services and nature camps are for all children to enrich imaginative play.

​Research has shown that time spent playing outdoors is beneficial for the health of all children both physically and emotionally. A few of the positive benefits of outdoor play may include:

  • ​Reduced anxiety and improved self-esteem
  • Improved sensory processing
  • Improved motor abilities/balance
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Increased eye-hand coordination
  • Increased attention
  • Improved problem solving and creativity
  • Increased social skills
  • Improved mood and regulation

​Our understanding and training in child development allow us to guide play exploration that is natural and inspiring. We want to provide a safe experience for the children of Northwest Arkansas to reconnect with the adventure of outdoor play beyond the backyard.
